  • Not sure, but why do you want a 32 bit version on 64x machine? You can download the version applicable to your system from http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/internet-explorer/download-ie

  • As you installed IE10 via Windows Update you were offered 64-bit which is applicable to your System specs.

    Just a FYI...

    The terms 32-bit and 64-bit refer to the way a computer's processor (also called a CPU), handles information.

    The 64-bit version of Windows handles large amounts of random access memory (RAM) more effectively than the 32-bit version.

  • Normally, the 64-bit versions of Windows 7 SP1 have both versions of IE 9.

    Now, though, with Windows Update, I install IE 10, only the 64-bit version is installed. How come?

    How should I do to still have both versions of IE 10?

    Thanks

  • I am with you on this one, as some programs would only work with the 32 I E 9, such as when we downloaded TechNet programs though the akamia dlm.

  • Have you searched in C > Program Files{x86} for the 32bit version IE?

  • Windows update installs the version that is compatible with your system. (32 or 64 bit) You can always uninstall IE 10 and go back to IE 9 in you want to. Just go to Programs and Features in Control Panel and click on View Installed Updates and you'll see Internet Explorer under the Microsoft Windows section. Just click on it and it will ask if you want to uninstall it. Say yes and you'll roll back to your previous version of IE. If you'd rather not have it show up in your Windows updates, next time you see it just right click it and hide the update. You can download it at any time after from the Microsoft site.

  • So, starting from a configuration with Windows 7 SP1 64 bit which has the 32/64-bit versions of IE 9.x, how should I do to install the 32/64-bit versions of IE 10 on this O/S?

    Thanks

  • Go here:
    <http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/internet-explorer/downloads/ie-10/worldwide-languages>

    Scroll down to the language you want, then click on the "Select your version" and pick 32-bit. Then click Download to get it.

    I haven't tried it since I have 32-bit Win7, but the 32-bit IE10 may not even install on your 64-bit system. Give it a try and let us know :-)

  • If I download both versions (x32/x64) of Internet Explorer 10 and then I install them on Windows 7 SP1 64 bit, are there any conflict or not?

    Thanks

    Bye

  • Don't know. As I said, I have 32-bit Win7, so 64-bit IE10 is not an option for me to install and test.
    If it's anything like Win8 64-bit, they'll cohabitate just fine. My laptop has both versions, and I don't have a problem with either one of them.

  • ie 10 32 bit will not install on a 64 bit machine,  one will get a notice NOT COMPATABLE WITH THIS OS !!! the only choice is stated above, REMOVE IE 10 down grade to ie 9. where one can use either 32 or 64 bit dlm's depending on the programs needs,

  •  I have windows 7 home premium sp1 and wanted to clarify your remark above "Windows update installs the version that is compatible with your system. (32 or 64 bit) " because it is not correct, it should read "Windows update is supposed to install the version that is compatible with your system. (32 or 64 bit) but doesn't" as I have windows update set at "Default" the recommended setting. Download and install updates automatically. Well my computer is a 64 bit CPU and windows update installed the 32 bit version of IE 10. The fact that Internet Explorer any version has always been very slow and constantly crashing has made me stop using it except for "official" Microsoft tasks. I use Chrome as my default browser because it is a much faster and way more stable browser so I didn't even notice that IE had been upgraded from v9 to v10 until my websites I visit regularly stopped loading and I got only a white screen. I am trying to fix this Microsoft Error when I came across this misleading answer. Everyone should be warned that no matter what version of windows you run, you should never let it make unsupervised decisions for your computer. The best setting is Download updates but let me choose when to install them! This is best because windows update has on many occasions installed the incorrect updates for my system all the way back to Windows 95 and now it still does this in Win 7. At least in this setting you are able to check the updates before they are installed and screw up your computer. As I have found updates meant for Vista on my XP comp, and XP updates on my win 7 comp. Having the wrong updates installed can cause some serious issues, especially when they can't be removed! A word of caution that I have not seen anyone give is NEVER TRUST MICROSOFT TO MAKE THE CORRECT DECISION CONCERNING YOUR COMPUTER. They will not be there to fix it when they make a mistake, that they leave to you.

  • this statement is also untrue, as it will not only install it, It will install without any warning or notification what so ever! I am running a 64 bit system with Win7 SP1 and microsoft windows update just installed the 32 bit version of IE 10 on my system by itself 2 days ago!! I wouldn't have even noticed but it caused my frequently used websites to stop loading and all I got was a white screen, while trouble shooting this I discovered IE had been upgraded from My version 9 i had installed to the 32 bit version of IE 10. If your going to try and help someone, Know what your talking about first, other wise your not helping, your just part of the problem!
